A Public Service Announcement

With Thanksgiving only a week away, I'd like to offer a warning against some little devils who will wreak havoc on your home. They may look cute, but don't be fooled.

Leave a miniature pumpkin sitting on antique furniture too long, and it will eat away the finish and stain right through the wood. The pumpkin may have won this round, but you can expect a spot refinishing post in my future.

so sad


  1. Oh Emily no! I had a minor incident of this very thing last year, but thankfully caught it in time. It never even occurred to me that this would happen. Sounds like you have a plan to solve for it- hope you'll share. Good luck!

    1. Hi Erin! I'm glad you caught yours before it was too late! I'm hoping to lighten the spot, but if it doesn't work I'll just call it "character" :)

  2. This happened to me and ruined my beautiful kitchen table. Ugh. :)
